How to display the main site's avatar in another subsite

I'm using your Avatars plugin and I'm trying to display main site's avatar in a subsite.
Is there any workaround that could be used for this? Please advise!

    Hi examden !

    I tested it and it seems it's a standard behavior for the Avatar plugin. I created a new user, logined with his credentials, opened Profile page on my main site, set avatar, opened Profile page on a subsite and I see the same avatar. Did I miss something?

    If you provide me with additional login credentials, I can look into it more.

    Hi examden !

    I got it. You could try adding the following snippet in a mu-plugin

    function wpmu_avatars_change_subsite_default_avatar( $default, $id, $size ) {
    	if ( !is_main_site() ) {
    		global $ms_avatar;
    		$main_site = get_network()->site_id;
    		remove_filter( 'get_blog_default_avatar', 'wpmu_avatars_change_subsite_default_avatar' );
    		switch_to_blog( $main_site );
    		$default = $ms_avatar->get_blog_avatar_url( $main_site, $size, $default );
    		add_filter( 'get_blog_default_avatar', 'wpmu_avatars_change_subsite_default_avatar', 10, 3 );
    	return $default;
    add_filter( 'get_blog_default_avatar', 'wpmu_avatars_change_subsite_default_avatar', 10, 3 );

    Also, you should open {wordpress_folder}/wp-content/plugins/avatars/avatars.php file via FTP and add the following line before if ( !empty($id) ) { ( approximately 1469th line )
    $default = apply_filters( 'get_blog_default_avatar', $default, $id, $size );

    Also, I'll add this change to the next version of the plugin.

    Best regards,
